February 1: Update: Issues with the Corruption rules

6 likes

Hi everyone.

I'm having some issues getting the corruption rules to the point where I'm comfortable publishing them, and I would prefer to release them in a small supplemental pdf that will be sent out.

Right now the corruption rules just don't feel like anything more than a straight up mechanic that ends with your character being removed from play. I don't know that I like systems like that. I'm working with Richard Woolcock to hammer out some variations on the rules that aren't so extreme.

In other news, more artwork has come in, and I'm sending the vast majority of the book to Ed Wetterman for final edits. I'm wrapping up a few new races. I've decided to add Fallen Angels into the mix, and I want those to be pretty interesting.

I think you're going to love this book.

      Hi David,
      I sent you a PM. Loving the stuff you've been showing on Codex Infernus. This book is going to be Epic!!

      Agree with Kevin. However removing the last bit should be epic hard, like Dean Winchester when he falls and become a demon in Supernatural. Only way to cure him is to remove the Cain mark but doing so releases something terrible..:) just my thoughts..:)

      As long as there is some way to remove corruption (a level of difficulty is ok). I am not a fan of no-redemption... it is after all, all about redemption.

      Yeah, he's been great to work with!

      Richard is a sharp cat, indeed. Definitely (IMHO) one of top three, and probably *the* best non-PegInc employee crunch expert for Savage Worlds (thumbsup)
